5 Surprising Things About Ferrari
1. Enzo Ferrari gave ideas to Ferruccio Lamborghini
At the beginning of the ‘60s, Ferruccio Lamborghini was making tractors, but the situation completely changed when he met Enzo Ferrari. When Ferruccio wanted information about a mechanical problem, Enzo made fun of him and rejected his request in a hilarious way. That was the moment when Ferruccio started to build sports cars with high performances. So, this is how the competition between Ferrari and Lamborghini started.
2. Former mechanic for Alfa Romeo, a future auto builder
The history says about Enzo Ferrari that he always wanted to race cars, therefore he started in his early years to work as a mechanic for Alfa Romeo, one of the most important car manufacturers in those times. The next step was to put into practice everything he learned about the mechanism of vehicles, and this is how Ferrari showed up and conquered the world. As a reminder, it is good to know that you can rent luxury cars in Dubai, for corporate travels or for special events in the city.

An Italian pilot used to put a horse sticker as an emblem for the plane he flew in the World War 1, for good luck.
